Hadith Answers on "Love the Arabs...". This was posted on MS a few days ago as well.
I haven't been able to find the booklet by al-Haafiz al-`Iraaqi yet.
How does loving someone mean not criticising them when Shariah is being violated? A person loves his wife and children so does this mean that he doesn't criticise them or leaves them to do whatever they want???
WHO is criticising the whole Arab community or ALL of the Arabs?
You can all you want but when this is a Shariah issue which is being raised so where do you get ideas from? If its personal opinion then say it and you are entitled to hold you personal opinion but it is against Islam.
You want to hold on to Judaic or Hindu ideas in your Islam, carry on.
Start a thread on Barelwees or Ahl-e-Hadeeth or Salafees or Anti-Sufees or Anti-Deobandees or Shaykh Al-Albani (RA) and watch the fragrant flowers grow out of the Keyboards of the very same Brothers who are defending Arabs :P
The fact is that Deobandees are so politically naive that they don't care as long as Madhab, Taqleed and Tassawuff is not threatened. In UK we have trimmed Beard Bidati Scholars from Jordan/Syria visit and they are accomodated in Darul-ulooms and entertained by Hazrats just because they are Sufees.
We have Shaykh Sudais who is a man with completely ridicolous and utterly dispicable ideas praising Sisi and Parvaiz Musharaf and our Brothers (and Sisters) fall over themselves in licking his boots.
Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE etc have done NOTHING but divide the Ummah sabotage every effort (from Palestine to Kashmir to Kandhahar) to strengthen Islam. We have Deobandi Ulama in UK giving Fatwaas that Al-Jazeerais good for news as they are Muslim and very balanced :) I was in a state of shock because it was clear that this Hazrat has either never watched Al-Jazeera or is truly delusional!
My brother says that our people have such an inferiority complex that in Masajid people refer to every Arab as "Shaykh" although the guy may have been a Motor Mechanic in his native Syria with ZERO knowledge of Shariah.
A Maulana who spent years acquiring knowledge is instantly ignored or relegated in favour of an "Arab Motor Mechanic" with small hairline, pants below the ankle etc...
You see that in India/Pakistan all the time! In Karachi a lot of Yemeni traders come in the Market and people chase them with "Ya Shaykh, Ya Shaykh"....Half of these are smoking Khat
In Middle-East I have seen Indians and Bangalees chasing Arabs the same way if somebody is married to an Arab he is looked up as some sort of a superior human being. Arab Sisters have proposed to be my 2nd wife and I have been called upon by Maulanas and Hazrats and honoured (and blessed) that an Arab wants to be my second wife :P ofcourse I don't say anyting out of respect...
Off topic but proves the point:
Arab Worship amongst Indian/Pakistanees is so shocking the response needs to equaly shock the people! My words are deliberately inflammatory, shocking, insulting to provoke a reaction.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
